participants. supervisor mirkarimi: supervisor avalos: thank you supervisor elsbernd: -- supervisor mirkarimi: thank you. supervisor avalos: supervisor elsbernd. supervisor elsbernd: following up on the economic impact on jobs and the public sector job growth, i almost wonder if your section of the comptroller's office and the other section of the comptroller's office might want to communicate a little bit in that respectively over the next few years it would be a mistake to say that the budget will grow. looking ahead we know that we have a budget deficit. to say that new jobs will be created, would not be more accurate to say that we will retain jobs? instead of getting new jobs? >> you are absolutely right on that point. i do not want to give representation that this represents a gross of the public sector. these are jobs that will not be lost just because the city revenue is growing by $15 million in the context of the revenue loss experience. supervisor elsbernd: potentially there is retention of public- sector jobs but a net loss of private sector jobs. >> yes. supervisor elsbernd: what

? seconded by supervisor elsbernd. any discussion? supervisor. supervisor campos: campos thank you, mr. president. i thank all the members of the public and interested parties who have spoken and to the planning department for their presentation. i think this is a unique appeal and i think in a regular appeal for me, hearing directly from the impacted neighborhood has a great impact and is in many respects it determines the outcome. i think, though, that there is a different analysis that is involved here because we're talking about the impact that this business would have not only in the very small geographic neighborhood area, but i think in the larger vicinity and larger city. and i think that that analysis necessarily requires that we look at what other people outside the neighborhood, outside the specific geographic area that's impacted directly, what they're saying and while i appreciate the many people in this neighborhood have come out in support of this project, i think that a number of very legitimate concerns have been raised. let me say that this is not to take anything awa
-- anybody hired before january of 09, their collective bargaining negotiations. supervisor elsbernd: someone who is involved in both the drafting of propositions b and d, it is important that it be pointed out that what it did on retiree health only applied to all employees hired after january 1, 2009. but the pension side increase to the pension for all current employees. in the short term, prop b has cost tens of millions of dollars. will not see the cost savings until we have a full generation of new employees hired. we will not see cost savings for a couple of decades. in terms of termsd -- poposition d, that is only in terms of new hires. these are, frankly, baby steps. they're not going to do anything about the increased contribution that we will see the following year. the savings are really only substantive on a 20 or 30-year window. >> i can understand that, but i think that the question was, are we not doing anything towards some of the issues that the grand jury mentioned? i still think that proposition d and b were an attempt to be aware to do the best that we can. i don't think

the district. supervisor elsbernd: that is different from what i understood. i thought that if we voted yes on the item, that would bring the necessary 30% for moving forward. you are telling me that public properties do not matter, that we need 30% of private property is? >> that is our goal as the steering committee. if we do not have private sector support for this combined with the city, it would not be able to be implemented properly. it would not be my recommendation to move forward exclusively with city support. supervisor avalos: i am trying to figure out why this is necessary. if we are looking out wanting to get a 30% threshold from the private sector, why not just do that? going forward to decide if we are going to pass the resolution if the intention is not to and that -- establish cbd. it seems like the right process to go through, seems consistent with what we just did at ocean avenue, giving the private sector a way to weigh in. i look at this as a foregone conclusion. legally 30% as a threshold, we could vote for it today, authorizing the city to sign on the petition. then w

to the budget and finance committee. joined by my colleagues supervisor mirkarimi:, supervisor elsbernd. madam clerk, do we have any announcements? >> all persons attending this meeting are requested turn off all cell phones and pagers. if you wish to submit speaker cards, please place them in the container to your left. please submit extra copies of the bile. supervisor avalos: thank you, caller. please call our one item. >> . item number one, ordinance amending the san francisco administrative code, 106 through 106.28, to impose a wholesalers and certain other persons who distribute or sell francisco to: 1) recover a portion of san francisco's alcohol-attributable unreimbursed health costs, and; 2) fund administration costs. supervisor avalos: thank you, madam clerk. colleagues, this is our second hearing on this item. last week i embedded amendments that we discussed that i will summarize the day. basically we had changed based on the economists' report that there is a higher level of consumption of alcohol in san francisco and alcoholic sales in san francisco, therefore the fee would not n
supervisor elsbernd. that is an example of where we have gotten ahead of other cities and we have been proactive about addressing benefits. one of the things i like to point out, and this report, the person reading it might give the impression that our retirement system is not doing well. to the contrary, it is one of the better funded and the best managed retirement systems in the country. i just want to put that out there as context while we walk through these responses. while we do have some challenges ahead of us, it is important to a knowledge that we are doing something very well and we're continuing to work on these issues. lastly, i think we have a lot to do on these issues, but i think there are a number of recommendations in this report that have either a factual legal, or feasibility issue associated with recommendations. we have some concerns about the wisdom and the city's ability to comply with those recommendations. supervisor chu: this is not so much a question for the mayor's office, i am more just wondering, the report that we had before that was pretty lengthy with a
of getting balanced. >> understood. supervisor elsbernd: to be cleared, this is a supplemental for last year? >> correct, this is retrospective. the chart i have handed out and dammed showing on the projected overhead and is basically the chart i have been showing you for the last year. last year we had 7000 cases for $8.8 million handle the the end of the fiscal year, 10,500 cases for almost $12.9 million, which creates a need for the supplemental. a 49% increase in cases and a 46% increase in costs. looking at it by type of case in more detail, last year we had 4700 record felonies for the fiscal year. this year we have -- for the year that just ended, 4800. this is a 30% increase in felonies-and a 120% increase in misdemeanors. felonies, by far, are the most expensive types of cases that we handle. supervisor elsbernd: the big increase in misdemeanors, is that tied to the cjc? >> some of it. most of it, however, are in regular trial departments. supervisor avalos: even this increase from 2008-2009 to 2009-2010, does it take into consideration the many cases were thrown out because of a cr
billion. who knows what is in store for us? commissioner mar: commissioner elsbernd. commissioner elsbernd: is it realistic that if the governor allows any change in the blf, they will keep the money for themselves? the bill will not allow us to do anything. >> correct. they would be using that to close the gap. whether they send that to the local government -- the net would be to the states benefit, not to local. . commissioner mar: thank you. >> thank you. commissioner mar: are there any other items? any other questions? seeing none, this is not an action item, but let's open this up for public comment. is there anyone from the public that would like to speak? seeing none, public, it is closed. next item. >> introduction of new items. this is an intermission commissioner mar: mar. seeing nonintermission item. item 10. adjournment. commissioner mar: thank you, everyone. the meeting is adjourned. >> good morning, everybody. this is the tuesday, july 13th meeting of the transportation committee finance. my name is eric mar. erica cheng is our clerk. please call item number 1. eclerk: approv
